Video of Biden Is Getting A Lot Of Unwelcome Attention
President Joe Biden’s bizarre behavior has sparked outrage after a video of him apparently nibbling on a small child emerged this week.
The video, which has been widely circulated on social media, shows the president in Helsinki, Finland. Biden walks up to a woman carrying a small child and proceeds to nuzzle and nibble on the child’s shoulder for several seconds. The little girl appears to be uncomfortable and tries to turn away from the president, who then attempts to kiss the girl on the head.
The video has been met with near-universal revulsion, with many social media users noting Biden’s long history of uncomfortable interactions with children. Digital media strategist Caleb Hull tweeted, “This has got to be Biden’s creepiest moment yet with a child. All Biden has to do is not do this and he can’t.”
The video even made its way to cable news, with Fox News host Jesse Watters saying, “Here’s the president nibbling at a terrified baby in Finland. It’s not presidential. It’s weird.”
The controversy comes at an already fragile time for the Biden administration, as the president is coming under increasing pressure from both the GOP and his own party over a range of issues such as his handling of the immigration crisis and his proposed infrastructure package.
Biden himself has yet to respond to the video, but White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki did address the issue during Tuesday’s press briefing, saying, “We must always take seriously the concerns of parents and children, and respecting their personal space. That applies to everyone.”
“This has got to be Biden’s creepiest moment yet with a child,” said digital media strategist Caleb Hull. “All Biden has to do is not do this and he can’t.”
Australian political commentator Rita Panahi tweeted, “Creepy AF & Biden has a long history of inappropriate touching, kissing, sniffing & whatever the hell this is …”
“The only time men do that is with their own children at home, maybe – not with strange babies in the middle of Europe with cameras rolling,” Watters added. “He’s nuzzling and sniffing random kids. Joe showed more affection to this young Finnish girl than to his own granddaughter in Arkansas.”
For now, the video remains an uncomfortable reminder of Biden’s past interactions with children. It remains to be seen how the White House will handle the incident going forward and if any further action will be taken.
